In London, Secretary Clinton attended a ministerial meeting on Yemen on January 27 and the International Conference on Afghanistan on January 28. The goal of the Yemen meeting was to consolidate international support for Yemen, coordinate assistance efforts, and reach agreement on assisting Yemen in its political and economic reform efforts. The objective of the London Conference on Afghanistan was to demonstrate the international community's support for Afghanistan's future and the agenda outlined by President Karzai in his November 19 inauguration speech. The meetings focused on the implementation of our strategy in support of Afghanistan's security, governance and development, and improved international civilian coordination.
The Secretary ended her trip in Paris, where she gave a speech on European security, and met with President Sarkozy and Foreign Minister Kouchner to discuss the international Haiti relief effort, developments in Iran, Yemen, Afghanistan and Pakistan, and an array of other issues of mutual concern.
